So it’s my birthday. I’m celebrating it the way any true salt would, by heading out into the ocean with a fresh breeze at my back.
The 3m+ square seas have made for a bit of a lumpy start, but the 8.5knots of average speed might make this our fastest 24 hour day ever and see us to Rodriguez in 10 days rather than the 14 we planned on.
We are all acclimating to the big seas, but generally happy. Convivia is stronger and more ready than she’s ever been, and we are in company with four other boats (who all left within hours of us).
All is well.
